North Queensland Fury still not out of the woods

North Queensland Fury's status as an A-League club is still not secure after they failed to meet Football Federation Australia requirements this week.

The struggling Townsville club needs to come up with $1.5million to ensure their survival as a stand-alone club, taking away FFA's control.

An FFA board met with Fury officials this week with a spokesman saying that they were not satisfied with the current situation and confirmed a decision on the flailing club would be made shortly.

"While the progress is encouraging, the numbers at this stage do not meet the required targets as set by FFA for the campaign late last year," a FFA spokesman said in a prepared statement.

"We intend to meet with the Fury advisory board next week to explore ways to obtain further support as well as obtaining the necessary certainty over the support already indicated.

"We want to make sure every measure has been explored before a final decision is made."
